Rise - Alien Societies Game (Closed)


(The Third Duke of Silly) #21

Is it too late to join, in all seriousness?


(cerealkiller) #22

Since 6 people made their species and there’s only room for 5, it seems so yes.


(The Third Duke of Silly) #23

heck.
Nevermind, then


#24

Looks like I’m on the waiting list then.


#25

Okay, listen up everyone, the players starting us off will be @Svrangite, @QuantumCrab, @BowlDawg, @PositiveTower, and @serialkiller.
The players waiting for a spot are @Oncpapa and @Biologicah, if they intend to be put in the waiting list.

I will officially start the game tomorrow, in the mean time players, check through your species, make sure their description and traits are the ones you want to go with. Once the game starts, everything is set in stone. Any details you leave out, I will assume what they will be and fill them in myself.
The game will begin at the beginning of sapience for your species. Little to no knowledge is gathered and no technologies have been developed. Your species have just become a people, and they must learn how to be a people.

GAME START

The species of the world were once nothing but animals, roaming and eating and mating. No purpose and no aspirations. But evolution would grant a lucky few the ability to truly see. To truly learn. To truly live.

@Svrangite
Surrounded by the tall orange grasses of the tropical plains, a small group of Ocilayad have banded together, but communication is difficult and problems sometimes arise.
Action Points: 1

What You Know

This is where all the knowledge that your society has will be stored.
Discovered species of organisms and areas can be named at your discretion.

The orange grasses are what make up the bulk of the plains and are poisonous and inedible.
Patches of small green bushes grow throughout the plains that have stinging leaves and roots that are edible.
Rare short grass patches that are light orange in color grow edible nuts, but are rather sour in taste.

An eight winged species of bird sometimes flies overhead, looking for corpses to dig into.
A four legged large reptile also roams the plains. It is incredibly strong and is the only predator of the Ocilayad.

@QuantumCrab
A new Far’Scraar has made their underground home in the forest. This queen, however, has more than just survival to strive for.
Action Points: 1

What You Know

This is where all the knowledge that your society has will be stored.
Discovered species of organisms and areas can be named at your discretion.

A very common shrub grows in large patches. They are covered in thorns and bear berries which are inedible.
An isolated species of red leafed bush grow away from other plants also bear thorns. These thorns are not dangerous and the plant is edible.
The trees that make up the forest around the Scaar are red with green leaves. They sometimes grow large fruits filled with seeds.

An amphibious species of mucus coated creatures are able to eat the fruits of the shrub patches and are typically found hidden within the patches.
A highly aggressive breed of bird flies in the canopy of the trees and will often attack creatures on the ground.

@BowlDawg
Within a tropical jungle, the newly sapient Pei Falso has begun to group together, but the communications they share are lacking at best.
Action Points: 1

What You Know

This is where all the knowledge that your society has will be stored.
Discovered species of organisms and areas can be named at your discretion.

A breed of tree with blunted leaves are most commonly seen. They grow hard fruits which are edible.
A smaller type of tree is rather uncommon that have berries that are sour to eat.
A type of shrub grows away from the trees has a wooden stem and produces nuts that are inedible.

A large bird is a major predator of the Pei Falso, but they are not highly aggressive and don’t pose a threat of extinction.
While not an often occurrence, a swarm of tentacled bugs will sometimes come along and bathe themselves in the moisture of Pei Falso skin, causing much agitation.

@PositiveTower
In the arid hills, the aggressive Smitzlerz have gained sapience, and will soon grow into a nation.
Action Points: 1

What You Know

This is where all the knowledge that your society has will be stored.
Discovered species of organisms and areas can be named at your discretion.

Rarely, a tree leaking sticky wax is found in the hill. This tree bears nuts which can be picked up and blown far away by the wind.

The only real competitor the Smitzlerz have are a species of four armed and two legged carnivores. While not particularly aggressive or territorial, they still are the only other known carnivore in the hills.
A nocturnal creature that is very weak roams the night, searching for discarded nuts.
A snake like organism resides around the trees of the hills and will coil up them to eat the nuts.

@serialkiller
In the dunes of the desert, the Saif are emerging. They cannot properly communicate just yet, but the time is soon.
Action Points: 1

What You Know

This is where all the knowledge that your society has will be stored.
Discovered species of organisms and areas can be named at your discretion.

A vine of the desert that bears fruit much bigger than itself is extremely rare and grows in hidden places.
Bushes grow around water sources that bear fruits are not all too common.

A massive reptile that is not often found roaming the desert will kill and eat any Saif it comes across.

ROUND 2

Awakened, the sapiens have arisen. They have already begun taking steps in their quests of knowledge, growth, and war.

@Svrangite
Some progress has been made in the creation of language as some objects are now identified by certain formations of sounds that is shared by the whole group.

@QuantumCrab
While the replanting of a few of the bushes is successful, there was much wasted effort as several attempts to replant the bushes led to the death of the plant, and the ones that were replanted successfully became unhealthy quickly. (New Knowledge Gained)

@BowlDawg
In the attempts to crack open a fruit in the common type of tree, a Pei Falso attempts to climb up the trunk of one to drop the fruit to break it on the ground. This proves fruitless (buh dum tiss) as the Pei Falso is unable to get up it.

@PositiveTower
Attempts to develop weapons becomes complicated to say the least. As a few Smitzlerz try to use stones, but the concept of weapons is so foreign to them that they quickly get agitated and give up.
